    I want to get a tactical scope for my M1-A to fill out a collection of several U.S. military rifles beginning with an 03-mark1. I am looking for one that most closely approximates what snipers currently use. I have narrowed my interest down to Leopold and Nightforce. It looks like I have to spend about $2,000. The technology part of the Nightforce website talks a really good story, but at the high end wouldn’t Leopold take the same care? Does anyone know which scope maker has the greatest presence in the military market? In terms of accessories I have a...

    I'm about ready to pull the trigger on a purchase of a new scope for my AR-15. The company is Leapers, and the scope is a 3x-9x X 40mm on a 1 inch tube, with illuminated mil-dot reticle. It's USA made (Michigan) and all of the reviews I've read have been positive. Here's the deal - it only costs $65 to $70 dollars! I'm on a tight budget, so the price point is really appealing. Anybody have personal experience with this company's products?

    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) awarded Lockheed Martin a $3.93 million contract to develop a rifle-scope attachment to enhance soldiers’ marksmanship capabilities. The Dynamic Image Gunsight Optic or DInGO system will enable soldiers to accurately view targets at varying distances without changing scopes or suffering a decrease in optical resolution. The system will enhance soldiers’ ability to accurately hit targets at a range of between three and 600 meters. DInGO automatically calculates the range with a low power laser rangefinder, digitally zooms in on it and accounts for environmental conditions such as wind using sensors built into the...
